Second grade is a year of immense growth. Over the course of the year, second graders go from reading early chapter books like Fly Guy to longer, more complicated books like Magic Treehouse. It’s the year that most kids get hooked on a series, fall in love with characters, and follow them on all sorts of adventures. In writing, they start the year with four or five sentences per page and end the year with ten or twelve sentences filling up a multi-page booklet. Second-grade phonics is about closing the gap between what kids can read and what they can write conventionally.
Using research as their guide, Jacquey and Gina show you how to integrate science and literacy learning in a way that reflects the authentic ways scientists work and increases students understanding of both.
